The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the Sustainable City Project have signed a memorandum of understanding for the operation of autonomous vehicles within the facilities of the project situated in Dubai Land, Al Qudra Road, starting from February. The MoU underscores the RTA’s commitment to engage in partnerships with the public and private sectors to realize its strategic, smart mobility objectives.
The deal reflects the cooperation and partnership between the RTA and Sustainable City by supporting the Smart City initiative along with the government directives to transform 25 per cent of public transport means into driverless transit modes by 2030. The MoU calls for studying the location of operating the autonomous vehicle in The Sustainable City project in Dubai Land, Al Qudra Road, and providing the infrastructure needed for the start of operation.
The integrated efforts of both the public sectors and the private sectors to support sustainable development by conserving the environment will serve the joint interests of making Dubai the best destination for living and business.
